Pupil Premium Policy
This document explains how we spend our Pupil Premium Funding to ensure all pupils have the opportunity to make our school motto “learning together in friendship” a reality.
What is pupil premium
For children entitled to free school meals, children in care and children of parents in the armed forces the school receives the pupil premium. For 2019/20 this is £1320 for pupils on free school meals, £2300 for children in care and £300 for children of parents in the armed forces.
Children on role at the annual census who have been on free school meals in the last 6 years will also gain this extra funding for the school (these are known as “Ever6”)
The purpose of pupil premium
We aim to deploy the pupil premium to raise achievement and narrow the attainment gap between children from low income and other disadvantaged families and their peers. At the heart of our pupil premium policy is the aim of closing the achievement gap which affects some of the most disadvantaged children across the full spectrum of needs and backgrounds within our school community.
Monitoring pupil premium
We will show annually how we plan to spend the new years funding and also publish a statement for the previous year confirming our pupil premium allocation, spend and the impact this has had. This will be published online through our new school website.
We will offer support to pupils through interventions such as
- Deputy Head/Inclusion Manager non-teaching release to individualise pupil premium SEN support
- Targeted classroom support by Teaching Assistants
- Targeted out of class interventions during and after school across all years by HLTA’s
- Inclusions support (FSW, EAL, Counselling, ELSA, Attendance Support, Magic Breakfast)
- Curriculum support (Workshops, maths/reading initiatives, trips, homework clubs)
